Master of Applied Arts & Humanities (Research) - 303JA

The Master of Applied Arts and Humanities (Research) is a full-time or part-time course which sees you working with highly qualified researchers with strong industry connections on a research thesis or creative project. Fields you can choose to explore include: communication, journalism, creative writing, culture and heritage, industrial design, visual communication design, architecture, landscape architecture, TESOL/FLT or international studies.

You will develop a deep knowledge of recent developments in your chosen area, as you work to produce a research thesis of up to 60,000 words, or a non-traditional research output, such as a creative work or design which addresses a research question plus accompanying critical essay. This unique and flexible degree encourages multidisciplinary research that mirrors the dynamic nature of today’s professions and aims to give you a creative edge in your future career. As a Higher Degree by Research (HDR), this course is covered under the Australian Government's Research Training Program (RTP) funding model, which provides a fee offset for domestic students for the standard duration of the course.
